Any new home improvement project is a challenge, and sometimes it can be hard to find the motivation to get started. Building a sundeck is no different. But the good news is that if you’re building a sundeck, there are plenty of great reasons to get yourself in gear and get your project underway. Here are six of them:
The best thing about sundecks is that they’re a relatively easy way to expand the living space in your home. You can add a lot of square footage for a relatively low cost, and in a short amount of time. When the weather heats up, having a sundeck is like having a whole extra room in your house, if not more. The only difference is that this room allows you to get outdoors and fully enjoy the great weather, while still enjoying all of the comforts of home.
Do you ever wish that you and your family spent more time outdoors? With a sundeck, getting outside is easy. Now, all of your favourite indoor activities can become outdoor activities. Playing games, enjoying meals, having conversations, and reading books can all be done outdoors when you have a comfortable sundeck to use.
Have you ever noticed at parties that most people always end up in the kitchen? Well, when your kitchen is outside, the party gets even better. Parties are all about good food, good drinks, and good people, but when the weather is nice, who wants to hang out inside? Make your home a place for parties by building your sundeck, and inviting all of your friends over to socialize in your new outdoor kitchen.
A sundeck is not just a functional addition to your home, it’s a visual addition as well. You can use a sundeck to add architectural interest to your home and garden, or use it to highlight existing architectural features. And once you’ve built your sundeck, you can still continue to add interesting visual elements like gazebos, trellises, planters, water features, and more.
In addition to improving your quality of life, sundecks are also good for your pocketbook. Many homebuyers these days are looking for homes with sundecks, so installing one can be a major benefit if you’re ever thinking of selling your home.
The last great thing about building a sundeck is that this project will be much more cost-effective than other, similar home improvement projects. For less than the cost of expanding your living room or kitchen, you can build a fully outfitted sundeck with all of the latest features.
Whether you’re a die-hard DIY-type, or you’re planning on hiring a contractor to do the job, these reasons should provide adequate motivation for you to get out there and get the job done. Overall, sundecks are a great investment, and they pay off both in terms of finances and quality of life improvement. So don’t worry about the rest of your home improvement to-do list – make your new sundeck your first priority.
